  1. I just bought a dd1 distortion detector and I was wondering what track I should play to tune my amp. They have -5db, -10db, and -15db. I currently use a usb with all songs downloaded at -7.5db and want the loudest and cleanest sound I can get out of it. I have 4 skar ddx 15s on a crescendo 4.5k @ 1 ohm. And will using a dd1 make my system much louder if tuned right?
  2. what kinda bass blockers would be good for my 8 inch crescendo PWXs. i have 4 of them on a kicker zx 550.2. looked some on sonic and amazon but dont know what to get.
  3. whats up everybody i just wanted to share my recent project after my factory amp blew all my speakers pretty much do to me not knowing that the bass was to high and they were clipping since i had my headunit at -6 bass. the amp was still blowing them so i just said fuck it. ordered 4 PWX 8 inch speakers and bought my brothers old kicker 550.2 to power them and let me tell you those things are loud. i had then hooked in my room and i can walk outside and listen to music. so heres some pictures of my project so far.
  4. Kind of new to this but jus wanted to know if ya'll think it would be good if I had between da 15z or 18z in a sealed box enclosure? What im tryin to do is build a chamber in a camper pretty much from cab window to camper window(leavin atleast 10-12 inches for batts and amp) and in the chamber will have a sealed box. Depending how much cubic ft they will need. I have a Isuzu pup 89 with a camper and thinking of cutting the window area with the according boot. lmk what u guys think.
  5. Alright SMD, I think its time! I would first like to introduce myself. My name is Wood and Im 23. Everything i own and will be done (by myself unfortunately) will be from hard work and dedication and my loyalty to the car/ car audio scene. No hand outs!! I work 50hrs a week, own my own EVRYTHING (but sometime it feel like bills own me LOL ) so YES, It will be a slow, but very progressive build. I'm enrolling back in college this coming fall to be an electrical engineer with 6yrs prior service in the Air Force Reserve as an EE on the F-16. I am a car enthusiast and music FREAK!! Now on to the Good Stuff: My Car is 2011 Nissan Altima sedan.

  6. Well my new subs arrive today, and will be the start of some reconstruction. I will show pics of the current system in chronological order, even though it is already out and ready for the new setup. So here we go! Disclaimer: Stuff's gonna look ghetto. Start of the box for my SA-15 This is when I had my crappy Soundstorm SSL 4000D. Had a Kindle Fire installed for a few months, had charging issues, it would charge when it wanted to, it was finnicky. This was me just test fitting the Kindle, it was all centered and was fit nicely. Ended up taking the Kindle out, bought a Clarion EQS746, I have no head unit, iPhone plugs straight into the Clarion. Here's the first kind of "big deal" amp I got. Accompanied by a MB Quart 4.80 (Which I love and still have) Hifonics blew, due to my subpar amp mounting skills. Vibrations got to her. Picked this bad boy up for the low. Made a amp rack Painted the amp rack and kind of cleaned the wiring up a bit. Then xmas started to roll around so I placed an order with Dustin @ DL Designz for a new box.

  9. I'm looking to start building a battery bank since I bought a crescendo bc5500 recently and won't be able to use it for a while. So far all I have done is the big 3 in my vehicle with the stock alt and added two extra batteries. Some walmart battery a friend gave me and an xs power xp750. They power a Skar rp-75.4 and an audiopipe apdl2001d "2krms". I have two crescendo symphony sc-650 6.5" component sets and two sundown x15 v.2's in a custom box tuned to 32 hz. The goal is to eventually have a c1100.4 power two 6.5"s, three tweets, and one 8" fiberglassed in both front doors with three x15s walled off on the bc5500. I want to replace the stock battery and have at least 4 batteries in the back. Just not sure of which batteries to get. I was hoping to not have to spend upwards of 400$ per battery. I'm still a car audio newb so I went to the xspower website and typed 7500 watts in the audio calculator and it told me one d7500 and three xp2500s would be sufficient. Thoughts?? I'll post some pics / more info soon
  10. So debating on 3 6.5s (be 1 Crescendo neo and 2 Deaf Bounce machete mm60) 1 6.5 and 1 8 (be 1 Crescendo neo 6.5 and Deaf Bonce DB-W80) 2 6.5s and 1 8 (be 2 Crescendo neo 6.5s and 1 Deaf Bounce DB-W80) ***if go with this would be eliminating rear door speakers*** What would you go with? The ft1s will stay in current spot and will not be in the door pods.
  11. I'm in the beginning stages of building a walled enclosure fro my 2007 Honda Accord. I have a design already thats 11 cubic feet and tuned to 33 hertz. My only qustion is 18 inch or 15 inch SSA ZCON woofers? I just dont want to limit the 18's to a smaller enclosure and almost limit the amount of db's it could produce. Or if I went with the 15's it would be perfect?
  12. i have 4 8 inch pwx crescendos in my car wired to a zx 550.2 i had the hz up to about as high as it goes. it goes from 20 hz to 200 i believe. im just a little lower then 200hz. i mounted my speakers in my doors and there is a noise that comes from my door panel that i cant seem to get rid of. i put sound deadener on my door and even on some parts of the plastic on the door panel cause i didnt know what else to do but still does it only on certain songs with more mid bass. its only on my right door. i have no deaden on my left door cause im still saving to get some but the right door just goes crazy sometimes and it makes me not want to listen to certain songs. so should i get bass blockers? would this make it were there is nothing vibrating my door or should i just deaden the shit out of it? which im still doing no matter what. any certain kinds of bass blockers would be nice cause i wouldn't know what kind to get so thanks in advance for the help.
  13. I am looking to run 150wrms to each of my four doors. My plan is get two of the Crescendo 500/2 2-channel amps, one for the front two doors and one for the rear. And getting the Mezzo Components for the front two door and a pair of PWX 6.5s for the rear two. I want a decent sound quality setup that doesn't sacrifice volume. I know with this kind of wattage it will def be loud, but are these components going to deliver decent sq? There are not too many other 150rms component sets out there. I found an MTX set and a Diamond audio set that are 150wrms, but that is all I found. The diamond set looks super nice, it's their hex series, but its a tad bit expensive. If the Mezzo's work well, I think I will go with those. What do you all think?
